New Start Veggie Garden

Pin It!

I’m hungry! What do you have for me to eat?

Sorry, Henry. Nothing for you.

My friend and I tried out a new vegetarian restaurant this past weekend, called New Start Veggie Garden.

The small plate has noodles cooked in sesame oil, and the big plate has red bean soup with rice balls, tofu lasagna, sesame greens, kimchee, sauteed bean sprouts, sweet eggplant, a piece of brown-rice sushi, and cauliflower curry. Also pictured is a carob brownie. Not pictured is sweet sprouted barley juice (which tasted much better than it sounds!).
I liked everything except the kimchee (too spicy for me), and I went back for seconds of the noodles and a lot more cauliflower curry, my favorite. I asked the manager what was in the curry sauce; here was his reply: The chef fries up tofu and then purees it with corn to make the main part of the sauce.
I’m going to have to try and recreate this sauce at home, as it tasted divine! It would, I believe, make an amazing alfredo sauce.

    Looks delicious!

    I love kimchee by the way- yum yum yum and yum. Bring on the spice and the vinegar. Henry is too adorable.

    I’ve been meaning to get over and try this place out, but didn’t want to drive over and find out it didn’t really exist!

    You live in Dallas?

  6. Patrick says:

    Well, it’s always my luck.. I drove over on Saturday and it was closed!

    I might try again tomorrow since the other Veggie Garden is close on Wednesdays=/

    Yup, it exists :o).

    And I live in a suburb of Dallas.
